Hike – Forststeig (Sächsische Schweiz)

The next hike finally takes us back to Saxon Switzerland. On the last weekend of June we will spend a day on the Forststeig, left of the river Elbe. With the S-Bahn line 1 we go to Königstein and hike from there over the Quirl and Papststein to Bad Schandau.
Length: 13 km, duration: 5 hours.

The Elbsandstein Forststeig (forest footpath) is a demanding trekking route with a total length of more than 100 km, which has been planned jointly by the forestry authorities of the Free State of Saxony (Sachsenforst) and the Czech Republic (Lesy České republiky) in recent years and opened in April 2018. On seven daily stages you can experience the unique landscape of Saxon-Bohemian Switzerland: spacious forests, bizarre rock formations and mighty table mountains.

You are cordially invited to join us. Please think of something to eat and drink for a picnic together. Bring sturdy shoes and a good mood! Make sure that you are fit enough for the hike.

The trip belongs to the yOUR Community project and is free of charge for you!
